I don't strongly like or dislike hipsters. They're just something we're aware of crawling around New Orleans and sometimes infesting our bars, with an exaggerated sense of their own importance and immortality - rather like cockroaches!
"SoBou" has to be the most fatuous restaurant name ever thought up in our town. It gives pretentiousness a bad name. Nowhere is south of anything in New Orleans (except maybe the West Bank). Why not name the new venture "TwordaRivah"? Or perhaps Ti Martin and Tory McPhail could name it "Ti-Tanic". After all, with a name like "SoBou," it's surely doomed to McFail!
My list would have left out Gott and The Delachaise but included Lüke and the Tiger Diner.
Odd omissions include Ralph's on the (City) Park and The Rib Room (looking out onto Royal Street).
